Converting Components to a Template

In the course of working on a design, you might decide that some of the components can be reused elsewhere and should be converted to a template.

To convert components to a template, follow these steps:

1. Select the components to convert.
To select multiple components use Shift + click or the rubber band feature.

2. Convert the components to a template.
Select Convert to Template from the Edit menu or the right-click context menu. The New Template dialog opens. Specify a name and click Save. The template is automatically assigned to the design, and is included in the Library.

The figure below demonstrates how to convert selected components to a template.
